She continued that photographic entries should be original pictures that have not been reproduced for public sale and never exhibited in any Arts Council of Lincoln County events in the past. The manipulation of images, either film or digital, should be limited to general saturation changes that use conventional darkroom techniques, including contrast, exposure, basic sharpening, cropping, red-eye removal and a minimal use of dodging and burning.
HDR photographs (made from three to seven pictures combined), multiple exposures, digitally stitched photographs, high dynamic range images and photographs containing any manipulated, added content, the use of metallic paper in printing or altered utilizing software outside of the camera other than the basic darkroom techniques described above must be entered in the special effects category.
The adult entry fee is $20 for up to three photographs, and the youth fee is $15, with a limit of two entry fees per participant for both kids and adults. Categories for photographs are: plant life/landscapes, people, animal life, abstract/special effects, miscellaneous and black and white. All entries must be framed and ready to hang. No saw-tooth hangers, hooks or desktop frames are allowed. All frames must have wire hangers. All work must remain on exhibit until the end of the show.
Judging will focus on mood, impact, composition and quality. Adult awards are: $125 for best of show and $25, $15 and $10 for first, second and third-place honors respectively. The corresponding youth awards are in the same amounts.
